GERMAN SPRING OFFENSIVEEdit
The German Spring Offensive, also known as the Kaiserschlacht, this was a series of German attacks on the Western Front in the spring of 1918. Germany had a manpower advantage over the allies since Russia had left the war following the Revolution. German High Command realized that this would disappear as millions of troops began arriving from the U.S.A. If Germany were to win the war, they need to strike immediately and strike hard!
German stormtroopers would lead the attack. This was the first use of German tanks and an artillery so massive it could be heard to London. The Germans broke through the Allied lines, advancing further than anyone had in the West since 1914. But as the weeks went on they were unable to move supplies and reinforcements forward quickly enough to continue the advance.
Though they had made great gains and inflicted devastating casualties on the enemy, they did not achieve final victory and the German army was left exhausted and depleted.
